"TREASURE hunters are hoping to dig up 48 crates of Hitler's hidden gold worth nearly half a billion pounds at a Polish palace used by his SS henchmen as a brothel.

The team will begin the archeological excavation at the 18th-century palace in the village of Minkowskie in southern Poland next week and hope to unearth 10 tonnes of gold and other riches.

The swag was stolen towards the end of World War Two under the instruction of SS boss Heinrich Himmler, to fund the creation of a Fourth Reich.

It is also thought to be made up of jewellery and possessions treasured by Germany's elite who lived in the area and gave the Nazis their valuables to avoid them being snatched by Russia's advancing Red Army.

The elusive 'Gold of Breslau', which disappeared from police headquarters in the Polish city of Wroclaw, is also believed to be amongst the hidden loot.

The treasure hunters, from the non-profit Silesian Bridge foundation, determined the location after scouring through secret documents, an SS officer's diary, and a map they received from the offspring of officers who frequented a discreet lodge dating back over 1,000 years.

The 10th-century Quedlinburg lodge was created during the rule of the first German King Henry the Fowler - who was fascinating to Himmler, who even believed that he was the King's reincarnation.

Quedlinburg members were awarded high-ranking positions in many Nazi institutions after the two formed an alliance in the Third Reich."
